Funny how filevault isnt even mentionned and how fail stuff like facial recognition is recommended.

beside if the laptop sleep - and it most likely does, no auth will help if the attacker is good since the key is in memory and he has physical access. specially if you have firewire or lightpeak. quite a bit harder if you dont.

not all that security relevant if you ask me.
